Finished: Ogee Lace Skirt

Pattern: Ogee Lace Skirt by Gryphon Perkins
Interweave Knits, Summer 2007
Yarn: Rowan Bamboo Tape
Color: white
Price: don't know anymore...
Amount: Less than 4 I think
Needles: When I started with the recommended needle size it was too loose. A year later, when I had to rip back a bit and redo the edge, it seems that my knitting has become tighter, because now I have to use a bigger needle size. Very strange…
Gauge: doesn't really matter, I guess, with warp skirt
Dimensions: ?
Modifications: Made it shorter and turned it upside down, because I didn't like the edge. It seemed to be kind of wavy. The leaves are pointing downwards now. I think I don't really like leaf patterns anyway where the leaves point upwards. That's against gravity and nature.
Comments: I washed it by mistake at 40 °C. After it came out it was a bit stiff and had shrunk quite. I pulled it apart and actually, now I like it better than before, because it has lost somewhat of the drape (it was too much for me before).
I don't really have much information about this project available, because I finished it such a long time ago. Before I made the modifications I didn't really like the skirt, so the it was just lying around.
